Established in March 1980 as a one-man consulting firm, our company has been dedicated to providing reliable and effective environmental engineering services to the private, commercial, governmental, and public sectors. Over the years, we have experienced significant growth and market stability, allowing us to expand our expertise and take on highly specialized technical projects.
In January 1986, we formed Chemical and Engineering Services Corporation (CHES), which operates under the name Fernando L. Rodríguez, PE & Associates (FLRA). This step was taken to establish a robust management system capable of handling diverse services and to facilitate our expansion to the U.S. Mainland, Central/South America, and the Caribbean Region. With our offices based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, we have positioned ourselves to serve clients across these regions. In March 2015, we further expanded our services by formalizing IEMES, PSC, another company that allows us to provide professional engineering services.
As active members of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) - Caribbean Chapter, we contribute to the development of LEED compliance design and programs for existing and new building structures in the United States. Additionally, we actively participate in the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA) as members of the SWANA Caribbean-Puerto Rico Chapter. Our team holds SWANA Certified Professional credentials in Landfill Operations, Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Recycling Systems, MSW Collection Systems, and Integrated Waste Management.
With our extensive expertise and certifications, we are well-equipped to address a wide range of environmental challenges and provide comprehensive solutions to our clients.
